Principles of Supervision and Management

When an employee becomes a supervisor/manager, success depends on the supervisor focusing more on developing relationships with employees and less on previous technical duties.  Gain an in-depth understanding of your role as a supervisor/manager and identify your own leadership style.  Explore and improve upon your core skills and acquire techniques to enhance your ability to lead.

"I liked how the Supervisory Skills Program sessions were only four hours long, so I could spend part of the day on training and part on work. The program was a great place for networking--a place to share common interests in leadership. Another great benefit was hearing from those in other industries and hearing about the challenges they face. Sometimes the problems you're trying to solve have already been solved elsewhere. By listening to others, you gain a much better understanding of leadership."

Jack Miller, system administrator, City of Napa
